September 13, 2017: City of Lansing Lunch n' Plan and Planning in the Neighborhood


Lunch n' Plan and Planning in the Neighborhood

On September 13, 2017, the City of Lansing held two Shaping the Avenue events. From 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. the Shaping the Avenue team held an open house at City Hall to exhibit a summary of input from the previous month’s Michigan Avenue street design events, as well as preview the citywide Form-Based Code. In the afternoon, the Shaping the Avenue team moved to Allen Farmers Market from 4-7 p.m. where community members gave feedback on the interactive districts map, streetscape aesthetics, and reacted to design alternatives for Michigan Avenue.


Your Ideas for shaping the avenue!

(examples from community comment cards)

"Bike- and walk- friendly is a must."

"I would love to see placemaking efforts made along Michigan Avenue, specifically more art (from local artists) & communal spaces where you could sit and eat or have a conversation."

"We need bike parking areas, parklets and public art."

"Bike lanes need to be big enough and safe!"
